McGregor May Have Gotten New Contract Before Arrest

McGregor May Have Gotten New Contract Before Arrest”

Because of McGregor's outburst three fights were canceled, causing for many fans to cancel their pay-per-view purchases.

UFC President Dana White says Conor McGregor has a warrant out for his arrest after allegations McGregor and his entourage attempted to attack a vehicle in the Barclays Center garage in Brooklyn, New York. So per White's request, McGregor was going to give his championship title an official goodbye on Saturday night. Multiple videos of this attack were taken and McGregor can be seen breaking a window of one of the buses with a dolly. Helwani reported on Thursday that McGregor was attempting to confront UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was on the bus, after Nurmagomedov confronted the Irishman's teammate and friend, Artem Lobov, earlier in the week. Michael Chiesa, the fighter shown in the video above, lost valuable time to cut weight as a result of the injuries he sustained in the fracas. He's out of jail on bail and is due back in court in June.

McGregor hasn't fought for UFC since November 2016 and was stripped this week by White of the 155-pound championship he had never defended. Make no mistake about it, the 29-year-old fighter is skilled and dynamic inside the octagon, but there must be a standard of professionalism in mixed martial arts.

Two other fights were also canceled because of the incident. "Do you want to be in business with Conor McGregor right now?"

According to MMA Fighting, things could have turned out quite different for the former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion.

McGregor's alleged attack occurred during a press event at Barclays Center ahead of the UFC 223 event, which is scheduled for Saturday. McGregor responded on Twitter not long after with a profane tweet that said, in part, you will "strip me of nothing".

What next for Conor McGregor?

"The matter is in the hands of law enforcement and I can not really say more", Attar said. "He's working on boxing Floyd Mayweather and then he's talking about fighting Khabib in Russian Federation right after".

White said he will deal with McGregor's future in the UFC after this weekend's event is finished.
